Saturday 4th October saw DDPC host the PCAT Dressage Championships
The day was well organised and ran along smoothly thanks to the help of Ange, Chris, Jane, Rosanne, Jodie, Narelle, Kylie, Geraldine, Natalie, Gwen, Kym, Sue, Sally, Ron, Penny O, Helen, Phillip, Robyn and Zoe. Thank you so much to all of these kind volunteers who worked so hard to make the day such a success, particularily those who rocked up to help even though their children were not competing.
The weather however had a mind of it's own, throwing us a very typical '4 seasons in one day' trick.
DDPC was well represented by riders in every group with Sophie Roles, Jessica Cowan, Cec Cameron, George Orchard and Katie Becker riding in group C, Brittany Kirkman, Erin Roles, Hannah Orchard, Stacy Plumbridge, Liv Whaltey and Emma Dolan riding in group B and Michaela Van Rooye, Laura Johnson and Jess Becker riding in group A.
